Pyaslaudio and jasper

So I have found that this https://github.com/jasper2fork/j2f works with matrix-creator and snowboy if you use the alsa engine.
But there is a a catch it only hears me when I am 3 feet or less. I cant for the life of me figure out why but that maybe I am just learning python… I posting a link to a video to show you what I mean. the difference between the snowboy python demo
and the jasper fork. Anyone out there have any insight?

Can you point us to the python code for snowboy? Do both of those work out of the box and use your default .asoundrc, i.e. do they use the same mic (0, 1, … or 8)?

p.s. https://github.com/Kitt-AI/snowboy/blob/master/examples/Python/snowboydecoder_arecord.py

Can you post your Jasper profile.yml and .asoundrc?
